Today’s affirmation is “I was born to thrive; the best is yet to come.” That is according to Mike Dooley’s Mini Manifesting Workshop. I am truly blessed to have come across Mike Dooley. He is a spiritual dynamo and those prompts got me thinking outside the box, not just working at my J.O.B., or on my new blog, or the book I’m writing. The prompts encouraged me to be even more creative….which was joyous! Even though I only completed a fraction of the prompts (transparency here) those did me a world of good. Truly I believe that anything that increases my creativity and encourages me to write for fun and enjoyment is a positive thing.

Tonight I want to believe the best is yet to come, but on this evening of our presidential election day I can’t help but feel less than encouraged. It’s a challenge to stay strong and keep my faith alive when there is so much division everywhere. And I wonder how we can be in this pickle. How is it possible that we the people have become a bunch of pawns in an international game of good and evil at the hands of power hungry people who don’t care about any of us.

Don’t get me wrong – there are plenty of good people in prominent positions as well. But they can be hard to pick out because they don’t get the media attention or coverage needed for us to see and know their goodness. What we see and hear, whether you believe it or not, is specially designed to make us believe and see things a certain way. If you think you know what is going on by listening to the news then you ultimately will be in for a particularly rude awakening. If you voted solely based on the old paradigms and what you heard on the news, then you voted based on how a very powerful group of people wanted you to vote for their best interests, not for yours. Truly, as Dorothy told Toto in The Wizard of Oz, “We are no longer in Kansas.”

Given all the drama going on, thank goodness writing can be very cathartic, particularly when heart centered. When I’m not writing for my J.O.B. the writing itself feels very different….sort of gooey rather than flinty. Letting myself by seen is scary but necessary because I believe that now is the time to step fully into our humanness and be real. While this is truly necessary, however, it is not for the faint of heart.

I feel compelled to do this, to share my story and passion, because I refuse to be a doormat or a pawn. Rather, I fully intend to live life on my own terms.

I've dreamed of being a published writer for many years, but had pushed it aside to focus on being a wife, mother, and commercial property manager. This blog is a journal of my experience as I create a new future one word at a time.
